Hi I'm Priscilla Tandiman

I was born and grew in Indonesia. I love the gospel around the world. I am thankful to be a missionay. I am happy to be a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in a family who are blessed to know about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am 20 years old and have gone to Brigham Young University of Hawaii for college and i am grateful for the great spiritual experinces that i had there. During college i got my mission call to the Cebu Philippine Mission and i have been out as a missionary for a month. I have learned so much and i have felt the greater spirit by seeking more about the gospel since i became a missionry. I know it does not have to be a missionary to gain these wonderful experinces in the gospel, because everyone can if they have the desire. I love playing music and i come to know that the songs in the church hymn can teach and touch people through its words. I am grateful for all the sources that Heavenly Father has provided to us so we can come closer to Him. I know as we accept the invitation that He offers to come closer to Him, we can definitely feel the blessings and be strengthin in Him. We will also be able to know Him better through the Book of Mormon which contains the words of His. I know Heavenly Father works through other people and through many different ways that will always bless us, and that is why i know the missionary work is great and important.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know the truthfulness of the gospel was restored by the power of our Heavenly Father. I have faith that i am part of His plan and His plan is the only source of happiness where everyone can be part of it. He gives us the blessings as we do His commandments and they are all freely given to no matter who that would take part. This is the time when we learn and I am thankful because I know it which allow me to be more encouraged to seek more. There is no reason that He would let us alone and lost, because all He cares is to have us back with Him. I know that it gives me reason to live in this life now. His teaching is true because i have lived it and i become to know it even more as i experience more. i also know the gospel is true because it is not just about us individually, but also as family, friends, and children of God.

How I live my faith

I had great simple and wonderful callings in the ward. I learned that every calling is from our Father in Heaven and it is our responsibility to fulfill those callings. There is no small and big callings because they have different purpose and role in building the Kingdom of God as long as it is magnified sincerely. I had the opportunity to have callings and all of them were basically to do service and the lesson i learned from that calling is that Heavenly Father has His plan for us and as we follow and rely on Him, everything is going to be all right. I had to remind myself in every calling that i cannot think about myself, because other people are His children too and we need to take care of each other. During our effort to do what we think is best, we might feel down here and there, but that would not be the end of our journey in fulfilling the calling because that is when we are shaped even more to be more firm in the gospel.
